JAKARTADAILY.ID – The Japan Credit Rating Agency, Ltd. (JCR) once again maintained Indonesian Sovereign Credit Rating at BBB+ (Investment Grade) with a stable outlook on July 27, 2022.
This decision took into account the prospect of strong economic growth in line with improving domestic demand, controlled government debt, and external resilience supported by the accumulation of foreign exchange reserves.
JCR estimates that government debt will decline gradually as the fiscal posture improves, supported by increased revenues in line with improving economic growth and rising commodity prices.

On the other hand, JCR also looked at the challenges stemming from the high dependence on natural resource commodities and low government revenues.
"The affirmation of Indonesia's rating at BBB+ with a stable outlook shows that international stakeholders still have strong confidence in the maintenance of macroeconomic stability and Indonesia's medium-term economic prospects, amidst the risk of the impact of the global economic slowdown on domestic economic growth," said the Governor of Bank Indonesia, Perry Warjiyo in a press release announcing JCR's decision.
"This is supported by policy credibility, as well as a strong synergy in the policy mix between Bank Indonesia and the Government,” Perry said.
